While I do not wish to impugne upon the original poster's intellectual
abilities, I will say that the primary exponent I have seen of this
position on the Internet is Ted Holden, a man who is apparently deeply
interested in purely fantastic hypotheses.

To the original poster, I'd be interested to know how his hypothesis
explains previous mass extinctions other than the K-T, and what problems
he has with current hypotheses on the subject.
